Snowball and Ninepatch

Here's a quilt I finished before I started my blog.

I used two traditional blocks, the snowball block and the ninepatch block.
I like the way that when these two different blocks are arranged together, interesting secondary patterns appear.

The blocks in this quilt are relatively small - only 6".
When I made this I was interested in shades of red, in particular how red and pink could work together. I tried to use a wide range of reds, including some warm pinks. Looking at it now, I think I could have put some darker reds in.
The navy is all the same fabric.
